A few months ago I started a series about my closet essentials — the pieces in my closet that I just can’t live without. Today let’s talk about chambray button ups. These are without a doubt one of the most versatile pieces in my closet. I remember a few years ago when people started wearing them, and I was super unsure of them, probably because my dad had a chambray button up and I often teased him about wearing it with his blue jeans (a look I wear regularly now. Sorry, Dad!).
I have a medium blue and a light blue one, and although my light blue one probably gets a little more use right now, they are definitely both staples.
The possibilities are literally endless. Try them tucked into a skirt, half tucked with jeans, unbuttoned with a tank or dress underneath for a laid back look; wear them with white, blue, or colored denim, wear them underneath a sleeveless dress, or tied in the front (like I did yesterday to church); wear them open and belted (or closed and belted), then wear the sleeves cuffed or half cuffed. The list could go on. Have I convinced you the possibilities are endless yet?
WHERE TO BUY THEM:
